On of our stockists in Belgium, SKM, sent this lovely snap of their shop’s Anna Scholz section. We think it looks gorgeous!
The Saks Fifth Avenue online shop has added more styles from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 collection. There’s a nice video option on the website and it’s always fun to see our clothes on a different model.
Here are a few more photos that Anna took during British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend. You get a little taste of the catwalk, a little behind-the-scenes-peek and a much-coveted sneak preview of some of the Autumn-Winter 2013 looks!
We were thrilled that the Vogue Curvy blog chose one of our catwalk pieces to highlight their coverage of the British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend. This gorgeous digital print jersey number is from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 White Label collection.

Last Friday, Anna had a chance to mingle with model and blogger, Tanesha Awasthi, and the navabi team. Tanesha’s blog Girl With Curves was the winner of navabi’s Best Curvy Blog Award 2012. Part of her prize package was a trip to London for London Fashion Week and to meet Anna Scholz.
Tanesha said she loved meeting Anna, one of her “curvy sheroes,” and the feeling was quite mutual. As Tanesha wrote on her blog, “the morning consisted of lots of fashion chat, browsing Anna’s Spring & Fall 2013 Collections, and of course, me finding a way to get my hands on some of the clothes!”
Here are a few snaps from Girl With Curves.
Awasthi started GirlWithCurves.com as a way to express her passion for fashion. But it has since turned into a mission for change by pushing the boundaries of fashion and encouraging positive body image for women of all shapes and sizes. Her blog was ranked the #2 style blog in audience interaction on facebook, with a 65% engagement rate (Fashionbi). It was ranked the #8 fashion blog on Tumblr (measured by traffic and subscriber rates). It also was ranked #59 out of the top 100 fashion sites in the world (Technorati). Awasthi has appeared on the cover of Skorch Magazine and on Forever 21 billboards.

Television presenter, Anne Diamond recently wrote an article for The Daily Mail online edition in which she praised the positive changes being made in the fashion industry with regards to choice for plus-size women.
“…I’ve noticed something incredible has happened in the past two or three years,” wrote Diamond. “Finally, fashion has fallen in love with fat”.
Anna’s Smoke print silk triangle dress (pictured) from her Spring-Summer 2013 White Label collection was at the top of Diamond’s list for reasons why the future of fashion is looking bright for curvier women.
Anna Scholz puts the body and clothing into a working relationship. Her garments are created based on a curvy size 18 and then graded down to a size 12 and up to a size 28, respectively, keeping curvy proportions in mind.
Sarah Bottomley, head of brand at SimplyBe (where Anna also designs a popular diffusion line), appreciates the skill that goes into creating fashionable and flattering plus-size clothes. “You have to know how to work with big boobs and bums and tums,” says Bottomley, “and that takes real technical know-how.”
Pieces from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 White Label collection will be available at annascholz.com from February 7.
We’re loving these photos taken by Canadian graphic designer-turned-photographer, Andrew Knapp. Somewhere in each photo is hidden his black and white border collie, Momo.
Knapp originally made these Where’s Wally-style photos to amuse his nieces and nephews, but has decided to share them with the world by creating a book.
Momo is one patient doggie. See more Momo photos here!
